Hi, I have set up pydev in eclipse from the download site, but when I try to add a new pydev project I get the following error i the new-project wizard:

.project found in C:\workspace(use import project)

But I have no project called that in my workspace. I have tried with a lot of names for my project, but always the error message. I can't make a new project.

Is there something I am missing here?


.project is a specific file that is placed in every project. The error message makes it sound like there is a .project file in the workspace folder (which should not be there). If you navigate to the workspace directory and delete the .project file, it should work correctly.

And note that .project is a hidden file. you need to turn on view hidden file to see it ok?

Thank you, case closed!
